A model of the City of Zagreb's aid to housing younger scientists on the Podbrežje project was presented last night at the University of Zagreb.

"This is a great help for science students, which help them to be existentially disposed of and thus remain in this city and this country," noted the mayor of Zagreb, Milan Bandic, while the rector of the University of Zagreb. dr. sc. Damir Boras particularly emphasized the fact that at the University of Zagreb there are about 970 novices who could become teachers and be interested in this measure.

Thus, within the framework of the Stanford Housing Construction Program, the City will grant homeowners interest rates on housing loans by paying customers an interest rate of 2%, and the difference will be subsidized by the City. Housing loans in this program will be more favorable than the market and will not require a deposit, while the flats will also be cheaper than the market.
